obama announced tom perez as his nominee, yesterday morning, at the same time, the republican party announced the results of its own self-autopsy. the chairman convened a tax force on why they lost so badly. if you want to bowl down what they found, it's this. they need to stop alienating and insulting everybody not in the party already. then you can have an outreach program in place to persuade people not in the party to join the party. the party will fund a program to minorities to the tune of $10 million and the republicans are stressing that whole effort can't be for show. quote, if we want voters to support minoritieminorities, we seem like we mean it. kind of see the line of thought there, right? for the republicans? they don't want to change their policies on anything, but they want to seem nicer. they want to seem more welcoming. just as the party is acknowledging missteps in talking about women, things like the whole legitimate rape, the party has to be a little shy about how it has behaved in public about latinos. and republican newt gingrich responded by calling her a rac
and with the republican party finding itself in sort of a coincidental temporal box yesterday, president obama nominating the first hispanic in tom perez and the autopsy about what went wrong in the last election. obviously, they don't like top perez as nominee. mostly for his politics. >> the basic problem the republican party has had when it's come to nonwhite voters, this is sort of at the root of it. you can go back, if you look at the message that was in this autopsy report, all about inclusion, respect, outreach, you can find repeated by past chairman, presidential nominees, major congressional leaders going back to the 1960s and '70s. the critical moment and modern evolution in terms of its relationships with voters, it was 1964. now they're getting into territory where the same thing is almost happening with latinos. they do slightly better, but are sort of permanently about 25%. so the most glaring problem here, we have rhetoric about immigration when it's somebody like perez. there's some rhetorical problems, but a deeper problem and that is that the republican party is sort of on the right sid

to be investigated. the embassador echoed what president obama said. another key republican, mike rogers, the house intelligence chairman, was on cbs news this morning and said he thinks, it appears to him, chemical weapons were used but he's a former fbi official who wants to see forensic evidence. that's important for a republican lawmaker to underline saying we need evidence before we say chemical weapons were used. >> ed henry on a historic day in jerusalem. we look forward to your report tonight. >>> more about israeli u.s. relation from the director of center for strategic and middle east programs. man, people talk about these two men at adversaries and today they say there's not much daylight on iranian, the thanks and accolades and friendship and we're the best friends, it doesn't sound as if there's a problem. >> the optics are good. everybody wants this trip to be successful. there's a lot at stake for the president. a lot at stake for the israeli prime minister and they talked about no daylight between the u.s. and israel on iran but there's a difference in the language they're speaking
.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back home in washington, very few people are expecting a breakthrough anytime soon. >> back to the middle east, where egypt's justice minister has warned that the lynching of criminals in the streets by angry citizens signals cassette in the death of the state." the comments came after suspected thieves were beaten and hanged by an angry mob in a rural village in egypt. bamut egypt's opposition blames the government for the failure to restore law and order in the country. it says police are using tortu

this morning, how does making false claims about president obama impact the republicans' rebranding efforts? jason. >> you know, the republicans have such a rebranding problem going all the way back to their primary. but in all honesty, lies about the president and his lifestyle is not nearly as bad as having a cpac committee where somebody was talking about how they support save lavery. republicans need to get specific with policy and not talk about personality and all these other social issues that don't really matter. talk about the budget and things that they're good at. >> katon. >> well, look, that's why we have cnn and why we have reporters. michele bachmann needs to answer those questions. but at the end of the day, cpac is a good organization. it brought a lot of things to light. but you've got to tell the truth and you've got to have facts when you're a public official. that's why we have primaries and general elections. >> all right, thanks for playing today, appreciate it. >> thank you. >> thank you. >>> coming up, we'll have more on that unbelievable shooting out of colorado. t

. president obama arrives in israel for his first visit there as president. we'll go live to jerusalem in just a few minutes. back here at home, some republicans recoil at the party's plans for the future. the chairman is in the hot seat. he'll be here live to counter his critics. >>> plus, senate leader harry reid says democrats will not have an assault weapons ban in their new gun regulation bill. and that is not sitting well with one of the top backers. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, march 20th, 2013. the first day of spring. come on, you like this tie. it's colorful. this is "the daily rundown." i'm luke russert in for chuck todd who is in israel for the president. he'll be joining us from there in a few moments. president obama has arrived in the middle east to begin i had four-day tour of the region. but it's not all pomp and circumstance. difficult issues loom as the leaders prepare for meetings later today. but publicly, the focus is on what president obama called the eternal bond between the two nations. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel be
of imperfect storm here during the obama administration. you have the republicans, many of whom support the idea of more presidential authority in the use of force, and you have a lot of democrats who don't want to criticize the president. you have a heads and -- you have a hesitancy to have the proper debate. the libya example is a very important one to look at. ,ost: congresswoman barbara lee a guest earlier today, pointing to the use of military force after 9/11 after the terrorist attack. "if that was a turning point, it gave too much broad authority to the executive branch." guest: there is some truth to that. we have an inherent right to self-defense as a nation, which allows us to take actions against international terrorist organizations. the way i have always put this, any place in any country that either cannot or will not deal with these elements -- that has been the justification coming out of that authorization for the broader use of force against individual targets. the concern i have is, first of all, we don't know. we don't know the actual justifications for that. number
republicans in this survey supporting public investment in infrastructure spending, and, you know, well -- it's obama has been calling for it for ages, but we know it's utterly impossible. so let's bash harry reid but they are the problem. >> michael: clearly they are the problem, on the assault weapons i'm just frustrated with reid. and you point out 80-some-odd percent on infrastructure and i heard 84% of nra members are for background checks so i don't know who they are listening to. what do you make of that gop autopsy? >> well, it was pretty superficial and pretty silly, and i think it's very interesting that that exact same day, and i'll have a piece about this up at the "daily beast" tomorrow, if i may get in that quick little plug but that very same day that reince priebus was at the national press club talking about the need to reach out to latinos, you had the president nominate thomas perez, and you had three republican senators, all white men, raise all kinds of questions about this guy, and say he is the wrong man for the job, so that's who they are. rein
've reached a point where virtually every major republican figure is on board for comprehensive reform. it's huge. >> you have a pragmatic reason for a lot of the republicans -- latinos make up 10% of the electorate they favor president obama, 71% to 27%, and then, you know, the rnc put out this autopsy on the election. >> right. >> and it clearly states, quote, we must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform. if we do not, our party's appeal will continue to shrink to its core constituencies only. does it matter if it's pragmatism or not? whether they really want it or not. >> i'm not sure how much it matters. the important thing is it's happening. and especially for the young people, the dreamers, for so many people who have been struggling and looking for a way to be part of this country, it does matter. and for the republicans, it's not just a question of, say, political survival, there really is a tremendous potential for rewards for them. because polling by latino decisions shows that about 1/3 of latinos would be open to a republican candidate if the gop supports immig
point and punish the republicans to for not going along with him. >> what is next? can selling the fourth of july? obama would like that because it is thought his country's birthday. >> he will join "the amazing race" and dance around a b-52 like there was no tomorrow. if there was never a better way to find out whether our canadian born president is a secret muslim it is right now. this is the most cherished holiday in our christian religion. no thanks to you. this is where we celebrate. it is no thanks to her. this is why we celebrate jesus' last miracle. they have magical powers. and then he can hide them for little children to find. it is in the bible and how dare you, obama? >> how dare you mockery lig jus people because you don't like bunnies. >> i like bunnies. >> again, i am picking up slack here. my own easter egg hunt will be in my apartment, and i will actually pi for the eggs. -- pay for the eggs. $20. tweet me at greg gutfeld, and remember to put the hash tag greg roll. jot sure where i am going -- not sure where i am going, but if you are coming you have to be ov

: more than months have passed since president obama was elected. rye now the republicans are offering a budget proposal that contains many of the same ideas voters rejected this fall. the republican budget would end the medicare guarantee as we know it and repeal the affordable care act. that's already providing benefits to so many families in my home state of rhode island and all across this country. rhode islanders do not want another republican budget proposal that jeopardizes our economic recovery, gives away billions of dollsars in tax subdies in big oil and tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas. they want a budget that reflects our values as a nation, promises we made to our seniors, invests in rebuilding our national infrastructure, protects our investments in education, and reduces our deficit by making smart cuts in spending and reforming our tax code. the republican budget fails to meet any of these standards. and i hope my colleagues will join me in opposing it this week. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expire

of of the gamble here that president obama and your party seem to be making was that threat of the sequester would be a deterrent to get republicans to the table. that didn't happen. but if we went into the implementation phase, the pain would be so widespread around the country there would be an outcry and pressure, public pressure, on republicans to come back to the table. we're not seeing that happen. in terms of what it was supposed to do for political pressure, is the sequester a bust? >> it is. in that respect. the calculation that the defense cuts would be so severe for the republicans, that they agree to alternative, turn out not to be true. and it is a very interesting situation because it shows how really -- really extreme the republican tea party style commitment is to cutting budgets. two reasons. number one, this is very dumb. a hundred percent of members of congress think it is a dumb way it make cut, yet it is happen ppg second, a significant can cut for defense in its across the board and republicans are walking away from what has been traditional strej j of their party which is st

for republicans every time, for bush twice voted against obama because of things like this, they still identify them. you're going to find go across the board women's rights, you know choice legislation obamacare, all these things, your number's going to be about 32% to 36% that's the number. that is exactly the number of people who want to repeal obamacare. i guarantee that movement, that group of people has not changed in this time. it's not a new group of people who have suddenly come across. there's an interesting part of it though, and this is what i would like to address to you. 21% want to change obamacare. now the prevailing wisdom in the media, and this is certainly part of the strategy, is that change means they don't like it because they don't like what it does that's new. i think that change number has a wedge of independents who lean republican who want to change it to limit what it can do. i also think there's a big chunk of democrats. jacki: who want it to do more. hal: who wish it had a single pair and will not say i support it but say i think we should change it and the change

the budget and it led to one of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise, work with republicans together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance the budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrast. our balanced budget -- our budget balances in 10 years. their budget never balances and raises $1 trillion worth of taxes. the question for the american people is, which budget actually helps? which helps people? i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people are out there are looking for the government to do. those inget helps need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. there's does not. there's springs about the demise of those programs. which budget brings about the type of tax reform that people want in this country, lower rates, a fairer and simpler? our budget does that. there's raises taxes to
. they do even more of that than the other republican budget. but it has the same fundamental gimmick with respect to obama care and on top of that it has another tax gimmick in it. mr. chairman, i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman from maryland reserves his time. the gentleman from georgia. mr. woodall: while i regret the rules committee didn't give us more time to correct that misinformation, they gave us wonderful speakers. i'd like to yield four minutes to a former chairman of the republican study committee, the gentleman from texas, mr. hensarling. the chair: the gentleman is ecognized for four minutes. mr. hensarling: i thank the gentleman for his leadership on this critical issue. we've heard from so many of our colleagues that budgets are priorities, and i believe this to be true. so what does it say about democrats' priorities when the president is almost two months late in submitting his budget and senate democrats have taken over four years to even bother to write a budget? i suppose it says, mr. chairman, that budget have a way of getting in the way
agrees the debt is not crushing the life out of america. but the problem for republicans is they have insisted that the debt is the reason we need to do the kind of draconian budget cutting they have been proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downw
of the politicianstor politicians ahead of the people on this? >> you could argue it either way. barack obama announced his support for gay marriage after the lines had crossed in the public level. after a majority of americans tipped in that direction. i think when you look at the republican party and what this segment talked about, the changes in the republican party and people like rob portman, those are the minority views within that party. republican views on this issue nationwide have been fairly stable. only about a quarter of remembers tell us they support gay marriage so in some ways some of these republican politicians are arguably ahead whereof the rest of their party is in that direction of that change. >> ifill: greg lewis, is it possible these surveys we're looking at don't pick up a silent majority perhaps who could still oppose gay marriage? >> there's really no evidence of that. we've never seen that once public opinion shifts towards gay rights on any issue that it drops back for any length of time. also it appears that our estimates based on the polls of how much support there for ga

and this is "the lead." the national lead president obama on open mike takes a dig at congress to israel's leader. by congress of course we mean republicans. house speaker john boehner reacts in our exclusive interview. >>> also in national the cdc now says one in every 50 children has autism. one in 50. there are real questions being raised at how the cdc arrived at these numbers. >>> and the sports lead. how long has it been since the miami heat lost a game? well, back then most of us had not even heard of the harlem shake. good time. >>> we begin with the world lead. and finally, all sides of the middle east peace conflict are seeing eye to eye on something. none of them expect much to come out of president obama's first trip to israel as president. the president just wrapped up a news conference with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and as you'll see from this clip things are off to a chummy start for two leaders with legendary limited affection from one another. >> i want to express a special thanks to sarah as well as your two sons for their warmth and hospitality.

home we're seeing new suggestions that president obama's second term honeymoon may already be over. a new poll shows half the country disapproves of the job that the president is doing, even as he continued his so-called charm offensive reaching out to republicans last week. it has apparently not stopped his slide in the polls which many believe led to the charm offensive to begin with and in fact, his poll numbers are getting more negative. here are some of the headlines in the last week or so. obama's approval drops as americans take a dimmer view of his economic policy. quote, after overhyping sequester, obama poll numbers stick. in recent days we read, obama's approval rate cratered in the past two months. and obama honeymoon may be over. and chris stirewalt editor of power play on foxnews.com live. the honeymoon is apparently over if the mainstream media declares it's so, it's so, i guess. here is the deal, they were going down, the fox news polls, the gallup news poll showed the president's numbers going down and then came the charm offensive, met with the republicans and pau
